Politicians love to endorse one another. The idea that you are so darn important that others like you, will support you, seems irresistible.
Mr. Sukhee Kang, who moved to Fullerton from Irvine to be our political overlord, is one of them. I visited Sukhee’s campaign website today to see what sort of endorsers I might find supporting this guy.
There is a long list of people up and down the State I’ve never even heard of, and who have probably never heard of Sukhee, except maybe for some plaintive voice over a phone line. But I was interested in a few of the locals who have, ahem, distinguished themselves in local politics – in one way or another.
Two of the more fun characters on the list are Anaheim’s Jordan Brandman and Lorri Galloway. You really have to wonder whether or not having their endorsement is really such a hot idea, politically.
Let’s have a look.
Um, well, okay…
Jordan Brandman is a first-term councilman in Anaheim, the petulant, wholly-owned subsidiary of Curt Pringle’s money machine. Apart from being a really peculiar and annoying third tier local politician, he is also a swindler. He grabbed $25,000 from the taxpayers by pretending to do a “study” for County Clerk Tom Daly; it was a scam; a phony, largely plagiarized report that only existed as a pretext to funnel $25K into Brandman’s pocket. When busted, he had to go through the motions of pretending to actually finish what he started, even though he had already been paid. Nice. Check it our here, here and here.
The closer you got, the worse it looked…
Lorri Galloway used to be on the Anaheim City Council. Folks in north Orange County may recall bubble head Galloway’s comical efforts to establish a residency in the 4th Supervisorial District back in 2010. It took her three times to get it right, and even then nobody believed the Anaheim Hills princess lived among her would-be subjects. Of course this was at the end of a long chain of duplicity that starts off with purloining a house from her auntie in Monterey County and waiting for the woman to die so as to dodge the inconvenient court order to pay her back.
We’ll be sharing the profiles of other locals who think it’s peachy for an Irvine carpetbagger to represent us in Sacramento.
